I am back to dreaming of creating a home just the way I want it. And today I am roaming through kitchen inspiration. So this is some of my inspiration for my future kitchen in my future dream fixer-upper-home.
There is a lot I find inspiring by this space – mainly the floor and those amazing windows… Windows like that and a lovely patio space to enjoy my meals when weather allows me is one of my interior dreams. And that pop of bright red on the pipe – is another level of interior shamazing! via
One of my kitchen wishes is space! Space enough to keep my hobby of looking for great dinnerware and lovely vintage cups going strong and also space enough to share the kitchen with other people. As I get older I truly start believing that the kitchen is the heart of the home – and I want a kitchen spacious enough to cook with my friends, family and loved ones. And I wouldn’t mind a chalkboard wall in my kitchen, like the one in the background, for notes, art and recipes. via
This kitchen is to me absolute perfection. Obviously it is white and grey with lovely wood floors – but I have fallen in love with the combination of different tiles. I absolutely adore the fishbone tiles – I wouldn’t mind them in my future kitchen – but then again; who would? via
I adore the raw wood in this space – which fits so well with the colour of the tiles and the driftwood shelving. I must say I find this space quite charming, and it seems like it would fit a crowd!
And we’re back on the tiles! The polygon tiles. I am absolutely head over heels for these tiles, being the tile lover that I am this might not come as great shock. And that pendant light – anyone know where I can get one of those? via
The breakfast bench in this place is absolutely gorgeous. I love the worn down leather combined with the lovely pattern of the cushion. The wood is gorgeous as well. via
The glass divide in this home is lovely. I have always had an idea of recycling some lovely industrial windows in my dream space, and as a well in my kitchen wouldn’t be the worst idea. Combine it with a door and you can separate the kitchen from the rest of the home without losing the feeling of space. via
Another great use of glass in a kitchen, making a mini inside garden behind glass walls. I would love this in my own home – wouldn’t know where to start though… via
This kitchen is absolutely lovely, it just feels inviting and cozy. I love the greens, who doesn’t love a bit of fresh florals in a space? And that window right above the kitchen sink would definitely make doing the dishes more of a lovely experience. Looking out on the life outside – day dreaming. via
I am as usual falling for the exposed brick – but this kitchen also is swoonable because it gives a great feel of space. Perfect city kitchen! via
Yes – the concrete is something to fall in love with – I know I am falling for it. . . But my main thing in this image is the pig! How cute is that piece of piglet art? I would probably have issues cooking pork, still – amazing. via
The whimsical in me is swooning over this one. Pops of colour, pops of typography, pops of Eames – and on the top of it all – that table! That table is proof of how imperfection creates perfection. via
One of my great wishes for a great spacious kitchen is a perfectly tiny and perfectly cozy breakfast corner! This one right here seems pretty perfect. There is something romantic about having a tiny corner space for enjoying the start of the day… via
The combination of marble and colours in this space is brilliant. The cutlery in the glass vase is pretty perfect – would love have a vase of pretty cutlery in my own kitchen. via
I used to be opposed to wallpapers – but my opinion has changes – and I am time after time finding inspiration in homes filled with wallpaper. And now I am getting excited by wallpaper in any shape and any form – especially in the form as kitchen decor. I would love a great wallpaper wall in my future kitchen…
I know I often bring up industrial greatness on this blog. But common! This industrial open space kitchen is pure greatness… Look at that dining table – and I do adore that lovely tiny neon sign action going on in the background. via
I’ve always wanted loads of open shelves in my dream kitchen. And I have totally fallen for these great shelves from Ikea – so the price is nice as well… I have this image in my head that if I have open shelves in my kitchen not only can I display all my lovely finds, but at the same time it will make me more organized… via
Adore this mini wash it nook – but mostly – those tiles! via
Why not get inspired by a coffee shop? That pop of yellow isn’t wrong! via
Again – this is all about the great display storage… I think I might be a person who would start the planning of a kitchen from the storage… All the other stuff will come along in its own time. via
That’s it for today! There will be more kitchen at a later time – and I will probably be running through every room of my future dream fixer-upper-home.
This post is down the road of you get what you see (in the headline). As I might have mentioned earlier – I am quite fond of industrial bits and bobs in interior. I have been going on about exposed brick walls on probably several previous occasions – but I devoted an entire post to this favorite here – if you are in the mood for more of the industrial vibe I am about to set off. I always had a dream of living in a city loft with exposed bricks – amazing open spaces and floor to ceiling windows framed by tough steel. That dream is still there – but I know it is not highly likely that I will get everything I want… Sill that doesn’t mean I can’t have tiny dosages of what I want – and I do not care what house I end up in – future me that is – but I know I will be bringing these windows into my abode! Lucky for me – the H agrees on this one. I feel like there will be more of the industrial posts sneaking its ways onto this blog in the future – there is something adoring about the transparency of the industrial style. How so many details that often gets hidden away is instead brought out as a focal point of the home or the design. The unfinished surfaces, the exposing of bricks and pipes…
Well enough written ranting about my love for the industrial – and more visual ranting. There are so many ways to use industrial windows in a home; the usual way – from floor to ceiling – letting in tons of light, the maybe more unusual way – as a room divider or as walls, or the more out there way – as the walls of your shower. Enjoy!
I have been in love with this idea from the first minute I laid my eyes on it. It is quite a vile back – I think I came over it in an edition of Elle Decoration… All I remember is that this lovely home is in Paris – and every room was like a tiny piece of pure perfection – especially the repurposed industrial windows used as a room divider. Pure perfection – and the gorgeous chevron floors doesn’t exactly pull this one down.
This is an example of using industrial windows for your shower. I am kind of in love with this idea – but at the same time I am not sure this is completely how I would do it. I am also big on bathrooms – if I was to fix up a house I would probably use a lot of time on deciding what to do about the bathroom/bathrooms… Pretty important room to get right in my eyes – maybe I am a special one.
What a lovely place to wake up – don’t you think?!
I wish I could do exactly that – every single spring/summer morning. Open up my huge doors and let the fresh air (or close to fresh – being in a city and all)!
Another lovely space to shower in…
Is there a fault to this workspace? I think I will have to say no…
There is something about these kind of windows that just screams “IT IS A GOOD DAY”… Waking up to a view of everything right outside your home – letting as much as possible of the daylight into your home must be so refreshing. Especially if you have a bit of green outside your windows as well – so you do not feel too much on display.
Not the worst bathroom I’ve seen – and definitely not the worst view from a bathroom!
